Taking pure elegance outdoors

Looking flawless with dewy skin and hair the colour of autumn, model Olivia Thornton is at once befitting of her surroundings and a contrast to them. Being equipped to face the outdoors doesn’t require you to throw all sense of glamour out the window, as stylist Lydia-Jane Saunders well knows; all it takes is a gorgeous piece of outwear, a pair of leather gloves, and…

Snow white, raven black

Skin like milk and lips like blood make for a Gothic fairytale beauty look if ever there was one. Paired with a short-fringed, raven-black bob, model Emily Green is part Snow White, party Evil Queen. Photographer Henryk Lobaczewski created this bewitching portrait of Emily, playing with contrasts – black against white skin – and with focal points, deliberately allowing some details to be lost and…

Liberty personified: reviving a classic theme

In the field of the arts, Liberty is most often personified as a woman: one with flag held flying and weapon in hand. Following on the allegorical path laid down by Ancients and Romantic artists alike (Eugène Delacroix’s “Liberty Leading the People” springs particularly to mind), James Broadhurst presents La Liberté, a modern representation of the theme. Model Eva is Liberty, cleverly styled by Lydia-Jane…

Vintage perfection: Louise Van Der Vorst in Karen

When things look perfect on the surface, odds are they’re not. But humankind is all for keeping up appearances, and that was even more the case in the days before we became accustomed to public breakdowns and sharing our woes with everyone and no-one via Facebook status updates. Think of the 1950s and we think of bright smiles and happy nuclear families, housewives in aprons…

Beautiful confusion: the androgynous Cooper Thompson

Cooper Thompson can usually be seen sporting a seraphim’s nest of flaxen spiral curls. With those he looks not only angelic but classical, as if sculptured by the hand of some ancient artist, or at least chosen by one as their muse. With straight, long hair, Thompson moves even further into the hazy terrain of the androgynous. In this shoot of Thompson, Lydia-Jane Saunders‘ styling…

Spring racing reds

The colour of flames and fiery sunsets, of blood and painted lips. And – in the case of Lara Milenko’s latest shoot, in which urban backgrounds are not accidental but tied to the theme, graffiti and paint and stop signs. The thing about red is that you don’t wear it unless you want to stand out. Doubly so when it comes to the high-impact styling…

Sun-drenched sensuality

It could be the glow of a secluded holiday spot on the Mediterranean; there’s little to give away the Southern Sydney beach location of Henryk Lobaczewski’s (henrykphoto.com) visually intoxicating photoshoot. Lobaczewski wanted to strip back the styling on the series to keep the shoot honed in on the sensual mood. Stylist Lydia-Jane Saunders (lydiajanesaunders.com) did the job brilliantly, selecting pieces with visual as well as…

American Lazarus

“I really wanted James to look intense and troubled,” says photographer James Broadhurst of his model, James Cater. With its rattling bones of percussion, bursts of organ and lyrics like twisted Sunday school sermons, what could be better for setting the mood than Nick Cave’s Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!? If music is a tool that can set a mood, then Broadhurst uses it well. The styling…
